The story of the Thai soccer team and their coach rescued from a water filled cave in Thailand has captured a lot of news attention, and justifiably so.
In its aftermath, there are indications that investors in Thailand hope to capitalize on the significance of the event in a rather bizarre way.
There’s talk that the cave will be turned in to a tourist attraction in the coming months.
Apparently, the thought is that enough people will be willing to brave the kind of conditions that nearly cost 12 boys and their coach their lives to warrant investing in the idea.
Americans have long been known as a people who love to see a train wreck.
Some say that the prospect of the possibilities of an injury, violence, or an accident, are among the reasons for the popularity of NASCAR, the National Football League, and National Hockey League.
If I were in charge, I’d close the entrance to the cave in Thailand forever so that no one else will ever think going inside is a good idea.
That’s the way I see it.
